Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM has unveiled the new Freeride 250 F off-road motorcycle. The dirt bike features several improvements compared to the previous model.
The new Freeride 250 F gets an all-new 250cc four-stroke engine which is based on the KTM's competition Enduro 250 EXC-F.
The newly launched off-road motorcycle has a compact and refurbished body with new front mudguard, headlamp cowl and graphics. The engine develops 20.21bhp of power and 18Nm of torque and sits on a reworked composite frame.
The Freeride 250 F is targeted towards beginner off-road riders. KTM claims that the longer steering head will improve rigidity and stability. The seat height of the motorcycle is just over 900mm and the kerb weight stands at 99kg.
The new Freeride 250 F is equipped with large 21-inch wheel up front and new 43mm WP Xplor suspension. The high ground clearance of the motorcycle will be helpful while climbing rough terrains.
KTM states that the motorcycle will offer a smooth and linear power delivery to suit beginner off-road riders. The reworked frame and new WP suspension make it a very capable machine while exploring trails and rugged terrain.
The new KTM Freeride 250 F will go on sale in the European markets in the coming days. The Austrian company has no plans to launch its off-road motorcycles in India as it is a niche segment. Kawasaki has already launched its KX250F in the country. KTM being a very popular brand in India, the off-road motorcycle could be an interesting product.
